This unit was organized as the first digitized DISCOM in the Army with the responsibility to reorganize under a consolidated Combat Service Support structure, train and test new technologies under the Force XXI initiative. CSM Erazo quickly became the subject matter expert in consolidated logistics operations and established a training plan which set the division up for success in its testing phase at the National Training Center. It is because of his hands-on style of leadership, the DISCOM and Division were so successful. CSM Erazo retired with over thirty years of service in 2001.
